In response to the recent increase in Aspergillus infections, new antifungal agents have become available accompanied by studies on antifungal susceptibility tests for epidemiological follow-up. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) M 38-A broth microdilution test with the disk diffusion and E-test in determining the susceptibility of Aspergillus spp. to amphotericin B, itraconazole and voriconazole.
